A traffic violation may not seem like a lot, but the costs can add up quickly, especially if you have prior offenses. You don’t have to accept the consequences without a fight, you may need legal representation.
One consequence that often goes overlooked is the impact that pleading guilty to a speeding ticket or moving violation will have on your automobile insurance policy and premiums. Usually your policy is up for renewal annually. As a result, your carrier will often review your driving history with the DMV and adjust their rates based on your conviction record. If your driving record is peppered with convictions and moving violations, you are at serious risk of having your rates increased or in some drastic cases, having your policy canceled altogether.
That’s why it’s crucial to fight these speeding tickets when you’re able to do so, and it makes sense to invest in an attorney rather than pay more money later in increased premiums.
